Hi,<br><br>
In the <a href="http://quakeroatmeal.com/qo_livingWell/healthyWomen/article.cfm?articleid=496&ArticleName=Updated_Heart_Disease_Guidelines_for_Women" target="_blank">Updated Heart Disease Guidelines for women</a>, it states:<br><br><b>Saturated fat intake should be reduced to less than 7% of a woman?s daily caloric intake.</b><br><br>
Could someone help me do the math on how many grams of saturated fat that would work out to, given a 2000 calorie/day diet? 1500 calorie/day?<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Okay, I found a good article with a chart:<br><br><a href="http://health.discovery.com/centers/articles/articles.html?chrome=c14&article=LC_104&center=p05" target="_blank">http://health.discovery.com/centers/...104&center=p05</a><br><br>
For 1600 cal/day, 12 g saturated fat or less<br>
For 2000 cal/day, 16 g saturated fat or less<br><br>
I'm going to set this up a goal in my Fitday, so I can track how I am doing.

that's calories of fat, not grams.<br><br>
for 2000/day, you'd be looking at less than 15g of fat.<br>
for 1500/day, you'd be looking at less than 11g.

See! That's why I need someone else to do nutrition math for me! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
